The Sundance Film Festival’s box office has been victim of a cyber attack, the festival said Saturday.

Screenings will go on as planned, the Sundance Institute tweeted, though it’s unclear how they’ll account for ticket and pass holders.

“Following the cyberattack, our team is working hard to get our systems back up asap. Screenings will take place as planned,” officials said shortly after the hack was announced.

Within forty minutes, the festival was able to bring its Salt Lake City box office back online, as well as enable servers for future ticketing.
